A seamless combination of man, nature and art, Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Falling Water” is an architectural masterpiece built in 1939 for department store owner Edgar J. Kaufmann which is ingenious for its ability to blend with its secluded surroundings. Structurally daring, Falling Water was integrated into a hillside around a waterfall, incorporating Wright’s love of European modernism, nature and architectural drama. A New York Times architecture critic praised its construction, saying the house, outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, summed up 20th century architecture and then thrust it forward even farther.
Four decades after his death, Frank Lloyd Wright is still considered the most significant architect of the 20th century. During his 70 year career, Wright’s distinctive designs were meant to reflect an American identity as an alternative to traditional European designs. Wright designed more than 500 houses, churches, bridges and other structures. He was also prolific in creating furniture, fabrics and housewares. An educator, author of twenty books, and head of an architectural firm, Wright profoundly influenced modern architectural theory and practice.
